The sign-up bonus on the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card has increased to 50,000 Hilton Hhonors points after spending $1,000 in the first 4 months of cardmembership. This is 10,000 points higher than the normal 40,000 points offered on this card.

In addition to the 5ok Hilton points, you will earn a $50 statement credit after spending $50 on your first Hilton stay. This is a great offer for folks looking for a no annual fee Hilton card and the offer says it will expire on 4/18/2014.

50,000 Hilton Points + $50 Statement Credit

There are several Hilton credit cards available, but for the no-annual fee card this is the best offer I’ve seen. I signed-up for this card last year when it offered 50,000 points, but now you can also get a $50 statement credit on top of that.

If you’re looking for a no annual fee card to earn Hilton HHonors points, this may be a good option. With the card you will also get a fast track to earn Gold elite status.

Card Perks and Fast Track to Gold Status

The Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card will get you automatic Silver status and after only 4 stays you will be able to get Gold status which gets you free internet, complimentary room upgrades and earns you a 25% points bonus on Hilton stays.

With no annual fee this is a great card to pair with the Hilton HHonors Reserve Card or Hawaiian Airlines World Elite MasterCard that has a 35,000 miles bonus that can be transferred to 52,500 Hilton hotel points. By combining these two bonuses you can easily have enough points for a longer award stay at a Hilton property.

After crunching some numbers on how far different hotel points can go, the 50,000 points from this card could get you 10 free nights at a category 1 hotel such as the Hilton Alexandria Corniche. After Hilton’s devaluation last year I haven’t made it a priority to earn Hilton points, but a no annual fee cards like this makes it much more enticing to earn more points for when I come across a lower category Hilton property that works with my travels.

The Bottom Line

This is the highest offer I have seen on the Citi® Hilton HHonors™ Visa Signature® Card and currently you can get 50,000 points plus a $50 statement credit. This is a great card for anyone looking to top off their Hilton points with a no annual fee card.

  • How can 35K Hawaii Airline miles be converted into 70K HHonors points. I thought 35K miles would get you 52.5K miles?

    • You’re correct, the transfer ratio changed last week and it’s updated now. The transfer rate between Hawaiian Airlines miles and Hilton Hhonors points is not 1:1.5, instead of the previous 1:2 ratio. This also goes for Virgin Atlantic to Hilton points.
